Elizabeth Miller, Executive Director of the Community Design Collaborative which created "InFill Philadelphia", a food access program which brings together design practitioners, community development experts, policymakers, grocery store operators, funders and neighborhood leaders to explore how design can address fresh food access in low and moderate income urban communities. Presented at the Association for Community Design 2009 Annual Conference.
Abstract: A central challenge presented in contemporary communities is making it possible to access affordable, healthy and environmentally responsible food in every neighborhood, regardless of wealth. This condition profoundly effects public health and quality of life. Panelists will discuss projects and initiatives which have been successfully implemented to make food available through community agriculture as well as retail channels and discuss ideas about strategies that might be tried.
